Drury’s time with the Yanks has been quite the ride. He was acquired in the offseason as part of a three-team trade with the Rays and Diamondbacks, and many believed he would compete for the starting third base job. However, he was placed on the DL after just eight games, on April 7, with migraines and blurred vision. By the time he returned, a red hot Miguel Andujar had the hot corner on lock. The 25-year-old was assigned to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on May 14, and wouldn’t make another Big League appearance until June 30. He was sent down yet again on July 9 after a doubleheader with Baltimore and has been there ever since.
In 15 games this season, the utility man is hitting .178 with a homer and seven RBI across 45 at bats.
